Canton, 0.. Aug. 2.—Prominent among
thf o.oiers .it the MoKinley home during
the past week was Col. Clark E. Carr of

f4:.i, more than rny other one man is re
sponsible for the establishment of that
k i. hen, and there is no limit to his en
thusiasm when he talks about the venture
CI about corn in general. With Col. Carr
corn is indeed king, although he does not
r ise corn and has no personal pecuniary
interest in.the industry.
The average corn crop in this country
j, two thousand million bushels a year,"
he. "Now suppose that by increasing
the use of and extending the markets for
corn we can increase the price just one
cent a bushel; that means *20,000,000 more
every year for the people who produce
corn. Suppose we con increase the price
live rents a bushel; that means *100,000,000
a year more for the producers. When one
thinks of these figures he need inquire no
further why the government gives sub
stantial aid to plans for extending the use
“I first becamo interested in this subject
whit I was Minister to Denmark. i
iv a titled some Indian corn for my own fam
ily use. I looked in vain in all of the stores
And market places for It. Not a pound in
any form for human use could be* found.
I sent to consuls in places with the
result. There was no corn in all
Scandinavia. In the course of time the
Agricultural Department at Washington
wa.' induced to take up the matter and.
■und.T Secretary of Agriculture Rusk. B.
Snow was sent to Denmark as a spe
eial agent to introduce corn as an article
t: diet. He took with him a stock in the
various forms in which it is put on the
market and left small quantities at the
market places with instructions to sell or
triv* h away. Then we began working
inv*ng those who have large numbers of
to feed to interest them in corn.
Mr Snow had ihe cook at the hotel experi
ment cn the various dishes that can be
prepared from corn and serve them lo
himself and family for two weeks. By that
timo the cook was able to make the dishes
palatable and we -gave a dinner to which
' v, ‘ re invited the commissaries of the army
and navy, several prison keepers and oth
ers who purohase food for a large number
or people, together with the merchants
ml business men of Copenhagen. Nearly
ov.ry dish at that dinner was made from
American corn, and the variety as well as
the daintiness was a revelation. The2guests
w- re all highly pleased. We made a few
**eehes with the value of corn as food for
and the result was anew market
,or cor n- It did not start with a rush; a
couple of hundred barrels the first year
and double the quantity the next, with
constant increases ever since, until now
our trade in corn with Scandinavia has
fi’own to important proportions.
I hod always believed that corn was a
great food for the masses and especially
ipted to the poorer classes because It
provide* great nourishment at small cost,
•'ind the experience in Denmark convinced
me that it could be successfully intro
duced in all the thickly populated coun
tries of Europe. But how to accomplish
it was the question. Early In our dis
cussion of the matter we decided that it
xvould not do to proclaim it the poor
p-nan's food, the cheap food of the world
or in any similar manner. To have call
ed it a cheap or a poor man’s food would
pave been sufficient to cause the very
tnes to whom it can be most valuable to
turn from it as from a scourge. The
thing to do was to interest first the good
livers—the people with incomes to buy
M ’hat they crave and by making corn
food popular with them reach the other
Hasses by showing them they could af
ford what the more fortunate ones choose
for their diet. Finally the idea of a corn
kitchen at the Paris exposition was con
trived. Commission Peck was interested,
and since taking hold of it has been en
"uusiasric. First we visifed restaurants
and eating houses to get the most com
pict and economical method of serving
large numbers. Then we engaged the chef
of one of the largest and best-known ho-
in the country to make the more
dHicn-te dishes from corn and a South
* rn ‘mammy.’ Aunt Jemima, to do the old
plantation kind of rooking. The result
i.- that in the kitchen corn is served in
probably fifty different styles and people
of all nations are eating there. The chef
makes a nlimber of corn soups. Some
times he uses canned green corn, but
more often one or another of the hominy
preparations which make n delirious
creamy soup, sometimes with beef stock
end sometimes without. He makes n
eorn patty, using corn meal for the shell
: r>d n fine grade of hominy with a dress
ing for the filler. Lobster juice, oysters
or sea foods are sometimes used to fla
vor them and again a more common ar
fi le gives the desired taste and variety
to the cooking. He makes half a dozen
kinds of pudding and cakes and all sorts
of side dishes. Aunt Jemima makes
'Johnny cake**’ and pone and other old
plantation dishes and when the visitor
comes #o the kitchen he has a well-varied
meal. prAdTicnlly nil from rorn, and the
menu varied from day to day.
“And all this is served free of cost, not
'vrn a tip to the waiter being permitted.
This is possible through the liberal app o
priation of the government for agricul
tural purposes at the exposition and
through big donations from the manufac
tuners of corn foods. When we started
this movement we wrote to tfe manufac- |
tnrers asking them how much of their

like the oatmeal experience, I believe. Not
many years ago oatmeal was not known

too. One of them is indorsing a more gen

this we encourage them. At first though!
it might appear foolish for us to work up
a demand for an article of our own pro
duction and then encourage another people
to produce it themselves. But with the
smill trarls of tillable land in France the
farmer cannot raise corn for the market:
he can only raise for home consumption
and by doing this he merely helps to in
crease the demand for the surplus of our
great American corn fields.

Interestingly About Them.
From the Washington Star.
“It is not always easy to detect coun
terfeits of gold and silver coins,” said Di
rector of the Mint Roberts, “especially
where they are of good weight and extra
fine finish, and the peculiar slippery sur
face by which many counterfeits may be
detected is absent.
“The public, in their haste in the ex
change of money, should find time to scru
tinize with care each coin as it is handled.
There is always much counterfeit coin in
circulation; r.o more now, perhaps, then
in previous years. The Secret Service
agents have been especially active re
cently, and their efforts have been pro
ductive of the most gratifying success in
detecting counterfeiters and securing con
“Our presses at the mints are extremely
heavy, weighing 13,000 pounds. Naturally
a piece of gold or silver struck from their
dies is as nearly perfect as it is possible
to make a coin. Yet counterfeiters, wdth
their light presses and dies, manage to
do some very clever work. The product of
moulds, a favorite method with the
smaller fry of counterfeiters, is inferior
to that of th© dies. The absence of the
clear-cut appearance of the genuine coin,
the defective weight, the imperfect letter
ing and milling and the indistinct reading
on the outer edge of the coin are the dis
tinguishing characteristics which will
guide the public in detecting coins thus
made. Italians are the greatest offend
ers against the law with mould-made
counterfeits. The most expert turners
out of metal counterfeits have been regu
lar makers of dies who wanted to get rich

all of which requisites may be taken in
with a glance, and one will always carry
about with him n pretty good* detector.’
“The men who make p their business
to cheat the government out of gold adopt
several processes. I saw a coin recently
which had been ‘filled’ so cleverly that
the fraud was apparent only upon the
closest examination. The ten-dollar and
• wenty-dollar pieces are mostly used for
this operation. The coin was cawed
through from the edge bv a saw of minute
proportions and exquisite fineness, the in
terior removed, and the cavity filled with
platinum, which brought the piece up to
standard weight, though it lost three
quarters of its value. It gave forth a good
ring. If it had been filled w’ith a base
metal other than platinum it would have
lacked the ring and been of light weight.
“In some of these filled coins the exte
rior walls of gold are as thin as ordinary
writing paper. Once the cavity is filled,
the sides are clamped into the original po
sition and brazed together. The edges
are skillfully recovered with gold, the
reeding, or the minute corrugations or
ridge* on the edge, restored, and the coin
will pass readily in the hands of the un
suspecting. Sometimes only half of the
interior will be removed. The re reeding
may be done with a fine file or a machine.
“The most dangerous tampered coins
are those which have been ‘plugged.’ I
don’t mean plugged as the word is or
dinarily accepted, and as we see every
day in the silver coins, but where th©
skillful counterfeiter gets out ns high as
one-sixth of the weight of a $lO or S2O
piece. The coin is pierced by boring a
hoi . in the edge, and the gold extracted
from this diminutive aperture. It is
then plugged with platinum, -the surface
of the aperture covered with genuine
mental, and the reeding restored with a
file. Inasmuch as the coins are genuine,
and the minute hole in the edge so adroit
ly covered, these tampered-with pieces
pass from hand to hand until the gold on
the edge wears off and the deception be
“Of the S2O gold-piece there are four
well-known counterfeits of the respective
issues, fourteen of the $lO, thirty-five of
the $5. and seventeen of the $2.60. The $1
gold piece is out of genera! circulation,
but nine issues were counterfeited.
“For example, there are two conterfeits
of the $5 issue of 1844, made of platinum;
diameter, thickness, and weight up to the
standard, and heavily gold-plated. Coun
terfeits of $5 dated 1802 and 1869 are struck
from a die. weight and thickness correct,
and made of gold-plated platinum. Those
dated 1881 and 1882 are the most dangerous

• hree-tenth of a grain light, and were

value of many of the counterfeit pieces is
from $3 to $3.50.
“Borne of the counterfeit coins are heavier
than standard weight, though this will
strike the average person a* improbable.
A $lO piece weighs 2T>B grains. The coun
terfeit of the date of 1853 weighs seven
grains in excess and has. a fine appear
ance. Those heavy coins are made <f
platinum. Of the $2.50 piece, look out for
those dated 1862. It is within one-half a
grain of standard weight, composed of
platinum, heavily gold plated, and can be
detected only by observing the edges where
the gold may be worn off."

From the London Express.
The police inspector at Kiogo Ken.,
Japan, has recently issued the following
instructions relating to foreigners to the
chiefs of the police stations:
“First. It Is- th© principle of Interna
tional intercourse to treat visitors from
far-off lands kindly and politely, and’it is
also the common spirit of civilized nations
to live in harmony of feeling toward each
other. Many foreign residents under
stand the Japanese language, and It is bet
ter to try to first address them in i>olite
Japanese. Never use any unpleasant
words or criticise the foreigner’s move

able to understand our meaning very of
ten, even If he cannot speak Japanese. Try
• o prevent any unpleasantness toward for
eigners while they are shopping by allow
ing a crowd of bystanders around them.
“Second. Foreigner© treat dogs better
than we can think of. nnd a diligent search
should be made and good protection given
when notice of a missing dog I** given.
When a house dog barks at you you
should tell the servant of the house to
pacify it. Don’t treat It roughly.
“Third. When you < all on a foreigner
you should not go early in the morning, at
meal hours, or late at night, if you can
help it. The l>est hours for calls are from
9 a. m. to noon, and 2 p m. to 6 p. m. You
should pay good attention to your clothing
prior to your call, and should bo very

your call. You ©hould ask for admittance
by pushing a call twdl or striking a gong
placed before the door for the purpose. if
there is no hell knock at the door with
your finger, but never call out for admit
“Fourth. If the usher appears at the
door you should ask him if the foreigner
you want to see is in and deliver your card
to be conveyed to him Before you enter
the house you should clean your \tootu
on the shoe mats placed at the entrance.
“Fifth. Greetings to foreigners are con
